    https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/bbcswebdav/pid-3590480-dt-content-rid-5577153_1/xid-5577153_1 

     

    With Vance, students practiced reading these reports

    https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/bbcswebdav/pid-3513221-dt-content-rid-5597698_1/courses/GAEN201.1Master/Readback%20sentences%201.pdf

    Tuesday June 23 picture description cloze practice 

     

    Students have two class periods today and one on Thursday with Vance

     

    I gave out this Checklist for Describing Pictures in the Speaking Exam

     

    We read two model pictures and things to say, from Bob Studholme

     

    I gave out two cloze activities from similar pictures and models

     

    The second class was cut short due to a meeting called at 10:30 so I had the students finish the cloze passages

     

    Thursday June 25 picture description practice 

     

    This kind of test derives from http://www.tea-test.com/

    Describing pictures in ICAO Aviation English tests 

     

    From this area in Bb Learn: speaking / guided practice

    https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/webapps/blackboard/content/listContentEditable.jsp?content_id=_3602405_1&course_id=_51610_1

     

     

    See the picture on p.8 of the test above and complete this worksheet: Picture cloze

     

    Finally, you can

    Use this newsfeed of a crash in Bali from which  we have taken photos in the past

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ7rfc1sQE8

    Click on the transcript option in the video to see how the voice is synchronized with the transcript (with some errors, see if you can find them). 

     

    The best kind of preparation is to record yourself practicing, listen to your recording, and self-correct 

    Find more crash pictures here 

    http://hdhut.blogspot.ae/2012/07/top-27-unbelievable-plane-crashes-pics.html

    Tue June 2 Write a Letter

     

    Dear Sir / Madam,

     

    My name is Dot Dotdot, and I have been working for British Airways as an air hostess for the past 7 years. I have experienced 1000 flights already.  I am writing to complain about how my working conditions are becoming worse, and I want to make some suggestions for improvement.

     

    First I want to tell you about the problems we are having with working conditions. We work for very long hours without break and without enough cabin crew to help us in this work. Also we are working these long hours at low salaries and without benefits that other airlines give their employees. The passengers do not respect us and are angry with us all the time.

     

    I have some suggestions that will help us to improve the situation. I think you should hire more workers to help us do our jobs properly on the flights and increase the salary and benefits. For example, you should give your employees free tickets and improve the quality of hotels we stay in at our destinations.

     

    I like my job, so I hope you will help us solve the problems that we are having by improving our working conditions. Thank you for reading this letter.

     

    Sincerely,
